|Utilities File Basic Generation Service Proposal|
The electric utilities have submitted their joint Basic Generation Service (BGS) proposal for the period starting June 1, 2018, with the Board. The utilities propose to continue the practice of using a multiple round descending clock auction to procure power for BGS customers. The proposal describes the auction process, including the qualification of bidders, the auction rules, and the roles of the utilities and the Board in the BGS process. The BGS-RSCP (Residential Small Commercial Pricing) auction will procure one-third of the utilities' BGS-RSCP load for the period beginning June 1, 2018. The BGS-RSCP auction will seek offers for the supply of full requirements tranches of each utility's BGS-RCSP load for a three year period. The BGS-CIEP (Commercial and Industrial Energy Pricing) auction will seek offers for the supply of full requirements tranches for each utility's BGS-CIEP load for a one-year term beginning June 1, 2018.
The utilities also filed company-specific addenda setting forth proposals for committed supply, contingency plans, accounting, and other issues.
